If you are to increase online sales as a business owner, you must be ready for the inevitable challenges you’re going to face. Realizing that the world of business is growing larger, worldwide even, the competition for sales is getting fierce. This is especially true when it comes to your online business.
If you are to succeed in this highly competitive online business world, then you must develop ways to create more sales than your competitors.
Once you’ve established your business online and begun making a profit, you must continue to develop ways to increase online sales more often.
How to Increase Online Sales Now
Following are two simple ways you can increase online sales immediately.
After Order Purchase
Offering an After Order Purchase is a great way to increase online sales immediately.
You can literally double online sales by simply offering another purchase after the initial order.
Why is this?
Think about it…
When your customer just completed a purchase they are still in the “buying mood”.
The best time to make another sale is while they are in the mood to buy.
Just be sure that the additional products and services you offer are closely related to their first purchase.
For instance, if you just sold someone an email marketing course then insert an affiliate link to your autoresponder service.
Don’t just leave your customers hanging at a thank you page. Before they complete their purchase re-direct them to an up-sell product, or a One Time Offer (OTO) after they’ve made their purchase.
On the other hand, the thank you page is an excellent place to add links to complimentary products. 😉

Once you begin updating your product lines, the tendency is to simply leave your old products behind in order to focus on promoting what’s new. That’s a BIG mistake!
Your old products can still produce some of your biggest online sales while you’re busy promoting your new ones.
Be sure to add a “discounted offers” page to your website or blog which includes older versions of what you’re currently offering.
There are always people who are searching for products despite their creation date, so long as their quality and usefulness are still relevant.
And to make a great strategy even better, offer some of your discounted products for a Limited Time Offer (LTO).

When it comes to sales, no one knows more about this subject then Zig Ziglar (quote above). The importance of what he means by this quote above cannot be overstated.
Whenever you create or promote a product, consider the following:
“How is what I am offering helping people?”
“What benefit will the customer receive from this product or service?”
“Will it solve their problem and ease their pain?”
If you focus more on helping people then your sales are sure to increase.
Although there are numerous other ways to increase your sales, these two work best for getting more sales now.
Put these to use and you’ll begin making more money more often.
